16:28 EDTKINGOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened the session in positive territory and remained there throughout the day. Although the market moved in a narrow range, the S&P 500 closed at an all-time high, the Nasdaq hit a 15 year high, and the Dow crossed back above 18,000 for the first time this year. There was little volatility in the market as investors looked forward to the three day Presidentís Day weekend. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., consumer sentiment fell to 93.6 in the preliminary February release from the University of Michigan survey, versus expectations for the reading to hold at the 98.1 it achieved in January. The import price index for January declined 2.8%, versus the consensus forecast for a 3.2% drop. In Europe, Eurozone GDP grew by 0.3% in the last three months of 2014, which was a bit faster than expected, largely due to strength in Germany. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of King Digital (KING) advanced $1.96, or 13.3%, to $16.70, while shares of Zynga (ZNGA) dropped 42c, or 15.79%, to $2.24 after both casual game makers last night announced fourth quarter results and provided their respective outlooks. The maker of Candy Crush and other games reported adjusted earnings per share and revenue that beat expectations and also announced a special dividend of 84c per share, while the revenue and outlook of its rival Zynga came in below expectations. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Columbia Sportswear (COLM), which rose $7.91, or 18.15%, to $51.50 after the clothing maker reported better than expected sales and profits, gave an earning forecast that topped estimates and approved an additional $200M share repurchase authorization. Also higher following its earnings report was another clothing maker V.F. Corporation (VFC), the owner of the North Face, Vans and Timberland brands, which gained $4.26, or 6%, to $75.26. Among the noteworthy losers was MagnaChip Semiconductor (MX), which plunged $7.50, or 49.93%, to $7.52 and was downgraded at Topeka and Barclays after restating its financial statements for 2011, 2012, 2013, and the first three quarters of 2014. Also lower were shares of ConAgra (CAG), which slid $1.59, or 4.37%, to $34.83 after the packaged food maker said after last night's closing bell that it sees third quarter earnings per share 10c below the 62c it earned in the same quarter last year. INDEXES: The Dow rose 46.97, or 0.26%, to 18,019.35, the Nasdaq gained 36.22, or 0.75%, to 4,893.84, and the S&P 500 advanced 8.51, or 0.41%, to 2,096.99.
12:33 EDTKINGOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and remained there throughout the morning, pushing the S&P to a new all-time high in the process. The Dow has climbed back above 18,000 for the first time this year and is also potentially on track to close the week at a new all-time high ahead of the long holiday weekend. The move comes in spite of the University of Michigan consumer confidence reading slipping from last monthís figure in the first look for February. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., consumer sentiment fell to 93.6 in the preliminary February release from the University of Michigan survey, versus expectations for the reading to hold at the 98.1 it achieved in January. The import price index for January declined 2.8%, versus the consensus forecast for a 3.2% drop. In Europe, Eurozone GDP grew by 0.3% in the last three months of 2014, which was a bit faster than expected, largely due to strong upside in Germany. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of King Digital (KING) are surging while shares of Zynga (ZNGA) are dropping after both casual game makers last night announced fourth quarter results and provided their respective outlooks for the first quarter. King Digital reported adjusted earnings per share and revenue that beat expectations and also announced a special dividend of 84c per share, sending its stock up 13% near noon. Conversely, Zynga's revenue and outlook came in below expectations and its shares dropped 16% in midday trading. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers following their earnings reports were Columbia Sportswear (COLM), which added 16%, SkyWest (SKYW), which rose 14%, and Groupon (GRPN), which advanced 9%. Among the noteworthy losers was MagnaChip Semiconductor (MX), which fell 49% and was downgraded to Hold from Buy at Topeka after restating its financial statements for 2011, 2012, 2013, and the first three quarters of 2014. Also lower were shares of Ambarella (AMBA), which slid 7.5%. Analysts at Pacific Crest attributed the sell-off to concerns over the company's revenue from Axis AB, which announced Tuesday it would be acquired by Canon (CAJ), but the firm said it believes Axis AB represents less than 1% Ambarella's revenue and views the pullback as an overreaction. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 29.25, or 0.16%, to 18,001.63, the Nasdaq was up 18.85, or 0.39%, to 4,876.46, and the S&P 500 was up 3.43, or 0.16%, to 2,091.91.
